After barely making it into the playoffs last season the New York Jets managed to get hot and make a run all the way to the AFC Championship. They followed that by having a very loud offseason, bringing in several big name players and cutting some of their key players from last season.
Most of the noise came from their head coach Rex Ryan. The Jets were the focus of the HBO training camp documentary "Hard Knocks." However many people were getting tired of the arrogant Jets. The Jets were self declared "Super Bowl Contenders" but many people thought the Jets were forgetting that they were just 9-7 last season with a QB who threw 20 INTs last season.
The season started out in a disastrous way for the Jets, when they lost 10-9 to the Baltimore Ravens. The critics were out in full force after that, with some even claiming the Jets season was finished after just one game.
We are now a quarter of the way through the season and the Jets are 3-1, defeating all three of their divisional opponents. While many critics claimed that last years run to the AFC championship was a fluke, the New York Jets are proving that the only fluke that occurred was in their Week 1 loss. Here are six reasons why.
